CDH9 Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Cell adhesion; Membrane protein, integral
Chromosomal Location of mouse Ortholog: 15|15 A2
Cellular Component:  axon; catenin complex; cell surface; cell-cell adherens junction; dendrite; glutamatergic synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; integral component of membrane; integral component of postsynaptic membrane; integral component of presynaptic membrane; membrane; plasma membrane
Molecular Function:  cadherin binding; cadherin binding involved in cell-cell adhesion; calcium ion binding; cytoskeletal protein binding; identical protein binding; metal ion binding; protein homodimerization activity
